Nov 28th 2011 3:54PM I bought a Whirlibird recently, and I LOVE it. Even on cold nights, I really only use the inner liner. On rainy days, I only use the outer liner. I'm sure on an upcoming snowy February night, however, I'll be happy I have BOTH layers.
Jul 27th 2011 8:59AM The Space Coast is a dismal place to visit. Titusville is a wasteland, thanks to NASA cutbacks, and the only place worth visiting in the region is Cocoa Beach.
The Space Coast's best hope right now is to rebrand as something like the Wide Open Spaces Coast, and aggressively market their Canaveral National Seashore, which has numerous islands surrounded by dolphins and manatees. People can reserve those islands, camp on them, and kayak around them. It's one of the east coast of Florida's best secrets.
Mar 17th 2011 2:05PM Love this!!
Jan 28th 2011 12:41PM Gorilla Glue is the the best. I've glued all kinds of things with it -- including an enormous cast iron bowl that we use as a fire pit (proving it's weather-resistant and even somewhat heat-resistant). Excess glue can be sanded away to leave an invisible seam.
Dec 17th 2010 1:34PM Wow, these are way more affordable than I would've guessed.
Even those of us in South Florida can afford to get an outdoor heater to keep warm on those cool winter nights.
Nov 9th 2010 8:33AM Is the little restaurant still at the Mfuwe airport? They used to have some of the best pizzas in Eastern Province.
I took a helicopter ride over the Zambezi once and saw a group of crocs attack and kill a hippo. To kill it, they surrounded it, grabbed it, and spun it over and over in the water to drown it. It was disturbing but amazing to watch.
(Love the final shot, of the airport.)
Nov 8th 2010 7:30AM "According to Google, an ounce of hashish retails for between $100 and $200..."
Scott, don't tell us you didn't know the street value of hash.
Nov 1st 2010 3:05PM I have the man's version of the Nimbus, and it's the best running shoe I've ever owned. I'm working on my second pair now, and I'll get myself a third paid when these are too worn to run. These are great shoes.
